My house is in total entertainment mode in the month of December. There are lots of fun ways to entertain around the holidays. Having finger foods is a plus to keep guests’, appetites satisfied. Having the traditional cheese boards or pigs in a blanket is fine but being a little more creative stands out. These little guys are perfect, Thai meatballs are super easy to make as well. The flavors these meatballs pack will leave your guests wanting more. Enjoy!
